About ApricotKing

Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!

In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts.  Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.

Simply Slabs 2019

The answer to the question "Which apricots are the sweetest?"

SLABS...ALWAYS SLABS....if you can find them.


 Slabs have the highest sugar content of all the apricots because they're longer on the tree...picked when they're soft and overripe.

Ours are machine cut, paper-thin, and delicate...even though they're the most labor intensive to produce.

These cots are separated from the rest of the pack by their unique color and flat-ness.

Blenheim slabs are the ultimate #1 choice of apricot aficionados everywhere!

Low in sulphur, so eat them, or refrigerate them. 

*** This 2019 crop produced the best slabs we've seen in years***

  1. Super slabs!

    Posted by TM, Los Altos on Dec 31st 2019

    These slabs are my sister's favorites -- she loves that the texture is more al dente or chewy, and that the flavor is so intense and sweet. Apricot King's dried fruits are the superb, whichever ones you like best!

  2. Delicious

    Posted by Blevins on Dec 26th 2019

    Highly Recommended; they taste great!

  3. Delicious!

    Thanks for the wonderful slab apricots! We are keeping some for ourselves and also sending to the east coast to make our families very very happy!

  4. Better Than Candy!!

    Posted by Ted H on Dec 18th 2019

    These are simply the sweetest apricits I have ever had! Each one is to be savored and enjoyed.
    I use the for desserts, on cheese platters, or right out of the bag. Exceptional product that never fails to please.

  5. Best ever

    Posted by Victoria on Dec 17th 2019

    These are tart and sweet, full of flavor with a perfect texture.

  6. What an apricot should be

    Posted by Marla Emery on Dec 8th 2019

    I grew up sitting in apricot trees, stuffing the sweetest, ripest ones in my mouth. Everything since then has been a disappointment. Except Apricot King's slab dried apricots. That's what a real apricot tastes like.

  7. The Best Ever

    Posted by Anita Palmer on Nov 25th 2019

    Fabulous product. Incredibley tangy, sweet, flavorful and chewy. Superior taste. Love them. Worth every penny. Super fast shipping. Appreciate that the Apricot King website explains the difference between the types of dried apricots offered - Never knew. We will be ordering again.

  8. Utterly Delicious!!!!

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 20th 2019

    Great product, quick delivery and unmatched quality of these wonderful apricots. Rush to get them ... you won’t regret it. Chewy and naturally sweet.

  9. Best apricots EVER

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 19th 2019

    I cannot get enough of these apricots. Truly the finest quality apricots I have ever found. Exceptional customer service as well. The BEST!

  10. Simply Slabs, Simply Fabulous

    Posted by Cathy Sawruk on Nov 16th 2019

    These apricots made a beautiful and delicious addition to my charcuterie board. For a dried apricot, these are bursting with bright tartness and a silky, chewy texture that paired perfectly with a variety of cheeses.
